Prometheus: Solving monitoring for EVERYONE
Technical level: Intermediate
Prometheus, now a graduated CNCF project, is the de facto leader in the monitoring and metrics space being used by 1000s of companies in the world. With the 2.0 launch nearly a year behind us, we are now focused on making Prometheus boring. i.e, more stable, more usable and even MOAR user friendly!
This talk will cover the new developments and the future roadmap of the project which includes among other things better remote integrations, backfilling API, security improvements and OpenMetrics.
We start with an introduction of Prometheus and it’s history. We then cover the strides we made in the recent time and how we solved several long standing problems that were hurting adoption like backfilling, data backup and long-term storage.
We then move on to the exciting things planned for the future which would cement Promethues’s place as the leader in monitoring.
Goutham is a developer from India who started his journey as an infra intern at large company where he worked on deploying Prometheus. After that initial encounter, he started contributing to Prometheus and interned with CoreOS, working on Prometheus’ new storage engine. He is now a maintainer for TSDB, the engine behind Prometheus 2.0. He now works at Grafana Labs on open-source observability tools. When not hacking away, he is either on his bike, or is binge watching GCN!
Grafana Loki: like Prometheus, but for logs
Loki is a horizontally-scalable, highly-available log aggregation system inspired by Prometheus. It is designed to be very cost effective and easy to operate, as it does not index the contents of the logs, but rather labels for each log stream. more
